Question about EliteGroup ECS A535 Notebook
I've had this laptop for a couple of years and am quite fond of it - even though I have a newer much-more powerful laptop. It started having an issue with the LCD screen a couple of months ago where it would dim out right after booting up. Sometimes, if I reboot or simply log out and log back on, it would restore video for a short period of time and dim out again. After doing a significant amount of research, I came to the conclusion that perhaps the LCD inverter has gone bad. Is this a reasonable conclusion? Looking for this part is quite a chore, and have been told by a number of places that the laptop is too old and the part is no longer available. I also learned that there are two OEM replacement manufacturers of the LCD screen itself - one by Quanta (part # QD141X1LH03) and another by Chei Mei (part # N141XB-L03) - but these parts exceed what I think is reasonable to repair this oldster and I'm waffling on going for it or simply removing the new HD I popped in this thing a year ago and tossing the laptop.
Any opinions or suggestions - please reply within a few days as I will make a decision one way or another soon...
You might want to do a quick check on ebay and see if anyone has something for sale there that you could use. Also, you might want to check to make sure that the LCD cables are firmly seated in their connectors. Reseating them may sometimes help with a problem like this. Also, the lid switch may be loose, broken or going bad. The next time you loose the display, you might try manually operating that switch, just to see what happens.
